Hazelwood moved to Jackson prison after pleading guilty to teens’ murders

The man who murdered two teenagers behind a Roswell grocery store has been booked into Georgia Diagnostic and Classification State Prison in Jackson, according to the department of corrections. 

Jeffery Hazelwood, 20, pleaded guilty but mentally ill last week in the deaths of Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis behind the King Plaza Publix on Aug. 1. He was then sentenced to life without parole. 

After killing Natalie and Carter, both 17, Hazelwood was arrested within 48 hours. He confessed to police, but claimed he’d been coerced. Medical records showed Hazelwood had been treated most of his life for mental illnesses. 

While being held in the Fulton County jail, Hazelwood was not given his proper medication, he told a judge at two hearings. In February, he was moved from the Fulton jail to Central State Hospital in Milledgeville, where he remained until his sentencing.
